Big ISP's whine in front of state legislatures claiming net neutrality raises bills to consumers

Ernesto Falcon has an article (“The Big Lie”) May 4 from Electronic Frontier Foundation summarizing arguments some big ISP’s have made to state legislatures claiming they don’t make enough money, and that net neutrality will cause consumer bills to rise, link here
EFF discusses a relatively small ISP in Chattanooga, TN that offers some of the fastest service in the nation, EPB Fiber Optics.
The article also describes an instance where ATT would not allow Google to use its telephone poles in some areas to enlarge its own new fiber optic service.  Anti-competitiveness is reportedly denying some consumers optimal access.
